Whirlpool "Heavy Duty Spin Twin", Model# YLTE5243DQ0.

So we have just moved and inherited this laundry center with problems.

1. The dry no longer produces any heat, everything else seems to work just fine.

2. The washing machine goes a little crazy during the agitation. It seems like it’s a very unbalanced load, but that is definitely not the case. No matter how little and balanced of a load put in, the drum seems to bash around making a ton of noise.

Help please!
Thanks in advance.

Dropping the Y brings this up in the USA.  The dryer could be the heating element, thermostat, etc for no heat.  The washer could be one of the supports has gone bad, glides , balance spring has broken or come loose, etc..  Will almost have to do a tear-down on these to see where the problems are in this unit

Hmmm, ok.

If I where to start taking it apart myself and see if anything is obviously broken, am I realistically going to find anything seeing as I don't really know what I'm looking at?
